The cuffs protect the wrists well from drafts, but do not protect against injury in the event of a fall. By default, power is supplied from the built-in battery. Some manufacturers provide for connection to the on-board network of equipment (for example, via a USB connector).

Ski-type gloves consist of an elastic base with electrical heating. Equipment with increased strength is put on top, which provides a tight grip on the sticks and reduces the risk of injury in the event of a fall. The built-in type battery has an increased capacity, providing a battery life of up to 6 hours. External batteries are rarely used, because the wires hamper movement when skiing down the mountain slopes or jumps.

Rules for the selection of equipment for heating the hands:

  • glove material should retain heat and repel water, preventing moisture from saturating the fabric and damaging batteries;
  • the heating element should be between the layers of fabric, providing comfortable conditions;
  • do not purchase unlined equipment due to the risk of burns;
  • for hang-gliding or operation at low temperatures, gloves with a fully heated surface are needed;
  • it is recommended to purchase additional clutches on the wrist, preventing the ingress of cold air and snow into the gap between the sleeves and mittens;
  • the design of the equipment must contain a bimetallic switch to automate the operation of heating;
  • you should buy equipment with a breathable membrane that circulates air inside the glove;
  • the kit should include an extension cord for connecting to an external battery with increased capacity;
  • glove material should not be blown by the wind, otherwise the heater performance will not be enough to maintain a comfortable temperature.

How to determine the size of gloves

To determine the size, use a ruler or tape measure to determine the distance from the end of the middle finger to the line on the wrist corresponding to the position of the watch bracelet. The data obtained will allow you to choose gloves. For example, a distance of 170 mm corresponds to the value S, and for a parameter of 190 mm, a mitten of the L standard is suitable. For people with a large hand and long fingers, XL format products are required. A dimensional difference of 3-5 mm should be taken into account, depending on the manufacturer.

Brief manufacturing algorithm:

  1. Turn the gloves inside out and smooth out the fabric.
  2. Empirically determine the length of the tape, which will warm up when connected to + 40 ... + 45 ° С with a current in the circuit not higher than 1 A.
  3. Lay the carbon wire on the surface of the glove and secure with 2-sided adhesive tape and threads. The tape is placed on the palm and on surfaces in contact with the fingers.
  4. Connect the power cables and close the switching points with heat shrink tubing.
  5. Finally secure the tape with thread around the perimeter and dots of silicone sealant.
  6. Connect a bimetallic fuse that prevents overheating. The sensing element must be in contact with the tape.
  7. Solder the battery connectors to the wires.
  8. Charge the battery and check the functionality of the heated gloves. If the connection points of the tape heat up more than the rest, then it is necessary to install heat shields made of felt.

User Reviews

Artem, 29 years old, Moscow

ArtemI am engaged in year-round paragliding and faced the problem of freezing fingers in winter. Additional mittens worsened the sensitivity, so I decided to try the equipment with heating. I purchased WNGH2-9722 products, a fully charged battery lasts for 2-2.5 hours at maximum heat. The material is thin and does not interfere with the control of the aircraft.

Yaroslav, 24, Arkhangelsk

YaroslavBought Savior Heat SHGS11BS gloves for skiing and snowmobiling. The threads warm up quickly, the battery has not lost its capacity in 2 seasons, but I use the equipment only on weekends, so the load on the batteries is low. The thin material allows you to feel the handles of ski poles or the controls of equipment, but mittens are not designed for severe frosts. When the temperature drops to -15 ° C, the threads do not warm up the fingers, but the problem is felt only when driving fast.
